I have had PowerPoint viewer installed on my desktop (XP home SP1) used to view PowerPoint attachments to email. Works well when I open an attachment from outlook express.
I recently installed PowerPoint viewer on my laptop (XP home SP2).
I can save the attachment, open PowerPoint and view the saved file with no problem.
When I open an attachment when in outlook express I get a message "The file does not have a program associated with it etc. Create an association in folders/ options.
Have checked and there is listed, in file folders/ options -pps -- Microsoft PowerPoint slide show presentation & ppt--Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
This duplicates the listing on the desktop.
Please--What have I missed and what can I do to make it work--Thanks--Mel Nester
